The source of the Sorgue is as interesting as any deep hole. It is about a 1 k walk with shops or restaurants on both sides. The river, indeed, is beautiful but there are too many people.

Beautiful village, with a pleasant walk along the banks of the clearest greenest water to the source of the river. Plentiful ice cream stalls on the way back. Best part was putting our feet in the freezing water on a hot July day!
